My boyfriend that i've been going out with for seven months over two years broke up with me almost three months ago. he found a new girlfriend a week and a half later. i've been heartbroken since, and i can't get oer him....

so i turned to what i had turned to when i didn't have him. i SI'ed again for the first time in months... and now i'm a mess, and i literally can't be happy anymore. i'm stressed from all my AP classes (he's in ALL OF THEM) and my family is NOT supportive at all. i gave up on trying to get my friends to understand, so i find myself alone a lot... but i don't really care about social things anymore anyway.

is this depression? or am i thinking too much into it, and i'll get over it?

This sounds like depression to me, which is not uncommon after a break up. Please correct me if I'm wrong, SI'd means self injured. If this is correct, I suggest you talk with your school's guidance counselor or nurse as soon as you can. Either way, this is something that you that they can help you with or at least refer you to someone who can. Please don’t try to ‘deal’ with this by yourself.

yes, SI is self-injure. but i'm scared that people are going to think i'm doing it all for attention, which is not what i want.. at all. and my mother knows i did, she just doesn't really seem to care.

Someone like a guidance counsellor or nurse isn't going to think you're doing it all for attention, they're trained to help you. If you're really stressed and literally can't be happy anymore, with very little support from family and friends, it's really important to seek some outside support. You deserve to feel better again.

I really agree with eryn_smiles, they will see you as someone who is asking for help and they should be able to assist you with getting the help you need. I also agree that you Do deserve to feel better again. [Smile] If it helps, a motto that helped get through some though times (and still helps) is “I am worth it!”. If you can that it to heart, it can motivate you through the hard times; it worked for me and it could work for you too! [Wink]
